Pre-birth sessions

The number and content of individual sessions before birth depend on the ideas and wishes of each woman who I work with. The content of those sessions are themes relating to pregnancy and the idea of the birth experience, help with finding the right hospital or another place for the birth, planning the birth options. Together we will go over the important matters relating to the beginning of labour, going to the hospital and the progress of labour and birth. We will talk about how to manage your labour pains and how to welcome your child to the world.  I provide a good knowledge of the czech medical system and my language skills.

During the pre-birth sessions we will also address questions relating to childcare and breastfeeding.

 Birth Escort

I offer the birth escort as a service package which includes: stand-by from the 38th week of pregnancy, continuous presence at your childbirth and one postnatal visit.

During the stand-by I am ready to set off for the birth as the woman giving birth wishes.

During the childbirth I provide the woman with care and support as she wishes. In case the father is present at the birth I try to respect the harmony of both parents-to-be and create comfortable and safe environment for them.

englishDuring the postnatal visit that I come to usually after the hospital release we recall the experiences and impressions from the birth, we talk over all the questions relating to newborn care and breastfeeding.

Postnatal visit

If needed, I may take care of the new mother and baby after the birth as well.

I lend books.
